Dualismes: Doctrines religieuses et traditions philosophiques

Lucia Saudelli, Adrien Lecerf
Pages 305-307

Matiere «issue du Pere» ou matiere «primordiale» ?
(réponse a H. Seng)

In this response, we discuss Professor Seng’s proposal according to which the Chaldaean Oracles call the matter πατρογενής («derived from the Father») and not πρωτογενής («primordial»). We first explain the philosophical problem raised by this philological reading and we formulate an objection to it ; secondly, we take into consideration the Late Neo‑Platonic tradition as an eventual confirmation of the πατρογενής hypothesis.
